Perhaps the greatest Dunhill's collection after Loring's.

Dunhill Collection - Erik Hesse (US)
From the 20s
* Note: This pipe is extraordinarily large -- 11 inches in length and 4 ¾ inches in height. It is un-smoked and remains in its almost flawless original case. I assume this pipe was made to be a display piece for a Dunhill shop, although the patent number is for American export, which makes it impossible to speculate as to what shop that might have been.  The pipe includes the original inner tube that also has correct patent stamping.
** Note: bowl height is almost 2.5 inches.
*** Note: These pipes are the only two LO9’s that I have ever seen. I have not been able to find any other individual who has ever seen one.  Finally, to my best knowledge, the L09 is not listed in any Dunhill catalogue.  The pipe is essentially an outsized 120.

Edsel was in the first generation of serious (pre-Loring) Dunhill collectors.
